Default Rare Original Photo of Riveted Depaheg Patent Helmet Being Worn

Hello,

I want to share this super rare image that I recently acquired. It shows a soldier from the Eisenach area near where my ancestors came from.

Fortunately the soldier is wearing his chinstrap down around his chin/neck area (something that is seldom seen in photos) and it clearly shows he is wearing one of the rare riveted visor pickelhaubes like those known to be marked Depaheg Patent. If the chinstrap was shown like in so many photos being worn up around the visor, we would never have known that he is wearing one of these rare ersatz helmets.

I will also show photos again of my riveted visor helmet which I bought in a helmet grouping that walked in to the old Minnesota Military Show several years ago.

Best Regards,

Alan
